The Bruins began preparations for the season-opener on Wednesday on Spaulding Field. Coach Mora put the offense and defense up against the "scout" team looks of Rice for the first time.

UCLA opens the 2012 football season on the road with a contest in Houston, TX against Rice University on August 30 (6:30 p.m. CT/4:30 p.m. PT on CBS Sports Network). The Bruins then return home to the Rose Bowl for three straight games --- Nebraska (Sept. 8, 4:30 p.m. on FOX), Houston (Sept. 15, 7:30 p.m. on Pac-12 Networks) and Oregon State (Sept. 22, time TBA).
